I saw a cool picture on Pinterest the other day of Raised Salt Painting done by One Perfect Day. I was looking for a simple art activity to do with the girls and this looked perfect. We did not have liquid watercolor paint so we just used food coloring mixed with water which most people already have at home. We had some unexpected results which I think turned out pretty cool. Judge for yourself.
Supplies you will need:
- Paper (white or black)
- Water mixed with food coloring (we made 4 colors)
- Droppers or pipettes
In the finished products below, you can see how the texture of the salt really comes through and leaves a trail even in the places where they had not glued. I am excited to try this again with liquid watercolors.
Thanks to One Perfect Day for the inspiration!
